I hope the month of June brings you unimaginable joy.
I’ve been blogging for a while now, even before it became and thing and people started making money from it. I used to love blogs because I got to see glimpses of peoples life no matter where they were in the world, and that is why I started blogging. To tell stories, to write better and to share a bit of my world. I always secretly wish one day, my kids will read it and know a bit more about their mother and maybe find some helpful gems here when my voice irritates them.
After I monetized my blog last year, I felt the need to write about things that will help me gain traffic. I tried to master the things that the gurus were saying worked and followed their schedule and times they posted, and to be frank with you, it sucked and I couldn’t be bothered. So, I stopped writing all together.
But now I am back and I am taking it back to when blogs were simply about sharing. I am writing for people, and for myself and my future kids. I will no longer be writing for numbers and money on this blog.
Moving forward, I will just be writing what I like.
New About Page Description
Hi, my name is Shereen and welcome to my space. The title of my blog was inspired by one of my favorite books of all time, Steve Bantu Biko’s, I Write What I Like. Steve Biko was known for being bold and courageous and for encouraging people to do the same during the dark days of apartheid, South Africa. This book and Steve Biko’s life has stuck with me for a while and my goal is write boldly and freely and encourage people to do the same. So on this blog, you find four categories:
- Lifestyle: Here, I will be sharing what my life looks like. I will be sharing some fun things I make, random thoughts, life updates, stories, and beauty related posts.
- True Life: This is where I will share about my struggles, my raw and honest emotions. I share this part of me on my blog to let anyone who happens to read this blog know that, truly they are not alone. My greatest desire is to let me people know, really know, that they are not alone and they are not the only ones struggling through life. Here is where I’ll lay my heart down and share all my feels. It gets deep and intense.
- Faith: This is a Christian blog, meaning my faith plays a huge role in how I perceive things and how I write things. Here, I hope God speak to you through my writing. Here, I write for God. God speaks to me in my writing, because my answers always show up in them. I hope my writings does the same for you. I will be sharing confessions and some of my prayers for you.
- Books: Books are my escape. They are truly my joy. I don’t read as much anymore, because life. But writing book reviews for you all encourages me to read more books. So you already guessed, this is where I will share my book reviews and any book related topics.
I hope something I write sparks something in you to be bold and free in everything you do. And I wish you the very best in life.
